Less than a month after the death of original screenwriter Silvio Horta, Deadline has word an Urban Legend reboot is in development at Screen Gems with Colin Minihan attached to write and direct. According to the outlet, this new take will “introduce an iconic new slasher for the digital age in a world where internet urban legends are born and move at a terrifying pace.” The story is also said to center on “a diverse cast of college students as they navigate a series of bizarre deaths that resemble urban legends linked to the darkest corners of social media.”
Appearing as a guest on Pop Culture With Pat, Michael Myers actor James Jude Courtney hyped Halloween Kills, stating “we pumped up the volume on this one.”
We have to make the natural progression from 1978 to 2018 to Halloween Kills – the ante has be upped. The ticking bomb has to be more intense. Otherwise we’re just doing what we’ve done before. We pumped up the volume on this one. We’ve progressed late into the night, and now that everybody realizes what the stakes are…it’s reaching a head. It’s [the 2018 film] on speed.
Meanwhile, Christopher McQuarrie teased three “obscene” stunts in Mission: Impossible 7 he’s “terrified” of filming during a recent appearance on the Empire Podcast.
He’s not going to space, nor does he need to go to space. We’ve figured out three obscene things that he’s doing that I’m terrified of, that make the helicopter chase look like tinker toys. [Tom Cruise is] training and he calls me and describes what he’s doing and I laugh and I cheer, then I hang up and I puke into a bucket. He’s training quite intensely right now.
